Book – I entered on the deep and savage way.
I entered on the deep and savage way takes us on a journey of self-doubt and loneliness. An endless maze where the reader often loses the beginning turns left for another path and turns right for a dead-end while seeking the exit.
The corridors with their monotonous blue carpeted floors, just seen as a place of transition, now took a form of a labyrinth—a suitable metaphor for these times where every day seems long and the same as the day before. This place may seem familiar to the people lost in the deep abyss of uncertainty.
Once the images captured and highlighted specific spaces’ materiality, which now are transformed into a book. The photographs are woven in with a text by Victor Diago, which is inspired mainly by Dante’s Divine Comedy and many other authors. An audio piece composed by the musician Porpita Prunella acts as a background score and brings a more profound feeling of anxiety and claustrophobia. These alliances create a more intricate dialogue where the narrator explains his journey while encountering a mysterious figure as his guide.
I recommend that you play the audio piece while browsing through the book to have a fully immersive experience of the visceral paths of this Labyrinth!
